TRIO SSS Summer Bridge Program

TRIO SSS Summer Bridge Program

Each summer, UNA’s TRIO SSS program offers a Summer Bridge Program to “bridge” the gap between high school and college. This hybrid program has both online and on campus components and is designed to introduce students to support services and resources available for UNA students. Participating students will learn important skills for studying, test taking and navigating college academics. Courses covered include financial literacy, math, English, writing, note taking and learning styles.

The Summer Bridge Program is free of charge for students and consists of two parts. Part I is a virtual program offered through online modules available in Canvas. Part II is a two-day on-campus workshop hosted in August. Topics covered in the Summer Bridge Program include:

  • Navigating Canvas 
  • It’s Academic: Understanding College Expectations
